Part 8: Not just fun and games

A noise reached Interalia’s sharp ears. She frowned. Steel on steel? She turned her head. There it was again, but it wasn’t coming from the tower. She took a breath. Oh crap. In a flash, she turned round and dashed towards the noise, swearing silently, but continuously. A few hundred yards ahead, Nails was fighting a group of four Orcs on her own. Interalia dashed ahead. Nægling was clearly winning. Her voice rang out strong as her sword slashed round in great arcs, never missing.

“And I will execute great vengeance upon them, with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I serve the LIGHT, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.”

Her large sword rose, then slashed down with frightening speed, it connected with the Orc in front of her, and nearly severed head and arm from his torso. Nægling kicked the body to get her sword free, and continued on to the next. One of the Orcs turned tail and fled towards the tower, while Nægling dealt with the last. Then, she set off after the fleeing Orc, but her legs would not carry her fast enough to catch up.

It’s always nice to have everybody in your party on the same page. That way, there are no surprises, and everyone knows what everyone else is about to do. Unfortunately, today is not a nice day.
